Today was Christmas Bird Count. Weather was chilly (20s) and fortunately not as breezy as forecast, at least not where I was (though it looked like it was blowing pretty good out of Silver Bay). I didn’t see anything too unusual, the best birds were a Savannah Sparrow and a couple of American Tree Sparrows, otherwise lots of things that I would expect to see for where I went. I was part of a group that boated around the outside of the causeway in the morning. Then this afternoon was out on Alice, Charcoal, and Japonski Islands. It was an enjoyable day in the sun.
